Banana Split Cake for Dessert

Hello dear friends! Yesterday I shared my Valentine's post with you and today I will post my Banana Split Cake recipe.

This recipe makes a lot and is very rich so you will only want to partake of a little piece at a time. I must warn you, it's heavy on the calories, but very worth it!

Banana Split Cake

You will need a 13X9 inch pan.

Melt 3/4 cup of butter
Mix in 3 cups graham wafer crumbs
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Cool

Beat together:
1 cup softened butter
2-3 cups icing sugar
1 or 2 eggs beaten
Spread on top of cooled graham crumb base

Cover the icing base with:
3 bananas, sliced and sprinkled with lemon juice

Cover bananas with a 14 or 19 oz can of well -drained crushed pineapple.

Cover fruit with one container of Cool Whip or real whipped cream if eaten right away.

Decorate with a can of cherry pie filling or fresh, sliced strawberries. For Valentine's Day, a heart made from strawberries would be pretty.

Keep in refrigerator. Enjoy!

Your family and friends are going to love this! It's a big hit whenever I make it. 

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

  1. This is a delicious dessert. I remember making it years ago - but with real whipped cream in place of Cool Whip. So yummy!

  2. Looks YUMMY ! Thanks for sharing , have a good day and a Happy Valentines Day .

  3. I have a question about the raw eggs. Are they safe to consume? I want to make this recipe soon and want to be sure. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  4. Maxine, the eggs shouldn't be a problem. Most functions don't last any more than two and a half to three hours. Other than that, it is kept in the fridge. Thanks for your visit.

  5. This is new for me, and I'm glad you posted the recipe before my Saturday trip to the grocery store. This will be our Valentine's Day dessert - suitably large sweet and pretty! Thank you!
